My son, age 21, had a dental cleaning 2 days ago and the dentist

Customer Question

My son, age 21, had a dental cleaning 2 days ago and the dentist also removed a permanent brace on his lower teeth left from when he had braces a couple of years ago. It was removed, because my son couldn't really floss there and there was plaque. My son now has a red round blister or sore under his tongue at the bottom the connection of the tongue to the bottom of the mouth. It looks to be about 1/2" in diameter. He takes immune suppressing medications for arthritis. He is starting to gargle with Listerine. I'm not sure if this requires follow up and with whom. Could you offer any guidance?
